Poutine Routine

On the advice of my friend, Andrew, who suggested while I visited Toronto that I must come to the Church Street Diner. He even knew the owners, Richard & Alfredo, and asked me to say hello for him when I went.

A must dish he told me I needed to try was Poutine. Poutine is a French-Canadian concoction comprised of french fries, gravy, and cheese curds. It was quiet delectable. I had it with the 555 Burger.
After I ordered, I told my waiter that my friend, Andrew had sent me here, and he told me to say hi to Richard & Alfredo. The waiter told me he was Richard, and he said that Andrew was here and ate and left just 15 minutes ago. I said that had to be a different Andrew, because my friend was in Texas. He said no, we were talking about the same Andrew, the one who comes here with Thomas. He said that he was here for work.
I tried calling Andrew on his cell and it went to voicemail. I left a message.
I even took a picture of where Richard said Andrew sat and ate his dinner. Just in case I needed it for proof, and of course for the blog.
I then asked Richard if he knew where Andrew was staying and he said the Sheraton. So I called the Sheraton and got his room, and he answered. I told him he was in so much trouble, he totally forgot that I was here also. So I convinced him to meet me and we toured some of the bars on Church Street and Yonge Street. We had a great visit. We even visited Jim's favorite place (the only place he saw in our brief visit to Toronto one month prior). Remington says hi!

Well tomorrow is Friday, I work, and head back to Buffalo. Friday is Fish Fry night and I have two offers to go to two different places for Fish Fry. Woo Hoo.

P.S. Church Street Diner is great, it is on 555 Church Street in Toronto, say hi to Richard & Alfredo if you stop bye.

I'm holding out on the water till I see some proof you're doing your part.

And fish fried in grease isn't healthy either...hmmmm.....
